  • There are a lot of references of rickettsioses acquired by travellers and considered imported diseases (McDonald et al., 1988; Bottieau et al. 2006; Freedman et al., 2006; Askling et al. 2009; Chen & Wilson, 2009; Jensenius et al., 2009; Stokes & Walters, 2009).

In the medical teachings of Hippocrates, the cause of infections occurring frequently in a certain locality or during a certain period (epidemics)was sought in “changes” in the air according to the theory of miasmas. This concept, still reflected in terms such as “swamp fever” or “malaria,” was the predominant academic opinion until the end of the 19th century, despite the fact that the Dutch cloth merchant A.
